Time for a Break
Are you the one who keeps crying for the business all the time? Whenever you talk with your team you only talk about the business? Do you feel that people don’t greet you with an open heart?
Or you are the one with whom people love to spend their time with?
These are some question worth pondering over as they have a huge impact on your business!
These questions touch on a very important aspect of your life and your business. They define your approach.
If you are over-serious, about something then you need to learn to chill out personally as well as professionally.
Why it is Important to chill out: Personal Reason
If you will keep yourself pressurized with business all the time, you are bound to get burnt out, i.e. sooner or later you will spoil your health. It’s always advisable to take out some break from the business. Relax yourself, your mind, change atmosphere, go for a party or vacation for few days.
Once you are back you will feel more rejuvenated & will be able to work with much more focus & strength. Whereas, if you keep on working without any timeout, you may start taking your work as a burden & surely you will not love & enjoy what you will be doing & hence efficiency will go down. So if you have not taken a timeout from long time, plan it & go for it.
Why it is Important to chill out: Professional Reason
Not only taking time out is important for your own relaxation, it’s even very important so that your people should not take you as a person who always expect business from them. Unless people don’t love you, trust you, they won’t do business with you. Spend more time with you people outside the office, work environment. Dine with them, go for a party, plan a trip, play some sport or any other activity that interest both the parties.
From my personal experience, I have realised that one learns more about a person when they share a meal than in a meeting/conference room. You get to know more about the kind of life your teammates and other people are living & accordingly you can add more value to their life.
